Luongo's contract is longer than Franzen's, and Franzen fills a bigger need now. If he's traded, we would get better value/fill bigger need going for legit top2 Dman.
The cap hit stays with Vancouver even if he is dealt again out of Detroit.

The fact is people are very happy with Howard in net and think Mrazek will be ready in a couple years. No big need to pull the trigger on a goaltender, we are just the wrong team. Detroit wants D, Vancouver isn't dealing a D.
